Speak Up. Show Up.

Jan 30, 2023

In the second episode of this two-part series, we cover tips on how to find the RIGHT kind of TEDx event for your goals.


I also share essential differences between a TEDx talk and a keynote speech or other kinds of presentation. From how to craft a compelling Big Idea to specific guidance on brainstorming, this episode will be an excellent companion as you craft your TED talk - as well as help you get on the TED or TEDx stage.


Building on last week’s episode dedicated to helping you set yourself and your application up for a more likely Hell Yes, this second episode rounds out the TEDx preparation.


Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • The best way to find TEDx events that are still happening live, especially after the pandemic
  • What to look for in a TEDx event to make sure you have a video you are excited to share everywhere
  • Why every TEDx event is NOT created equal and how to match the opportunity with your personal goals for speaking
  • An excellent starting formula for crafting your Big Idea - even as it will likely evolve as you go through the prep process
  • How to reveal and choose the best content for your TEDx application and, eventually, talk content
  • What I mean by the Magic Mix of Content and why it’s so important as you craft your TED talk


Listen to this episode along with part 1 and be completely prepared from searching for your event all the way through crafting your TEDx talk once you get your Hell Yes!
